On photo Sunset on the mud flats near Heide in the Mobile phone photography challenge (6 comments in total)

Thanks !
Nice to have a mobile phone with you when the conditions are looking good!
This was taken in the evening during a biz trip where I didn't have my normal bigger gear with me.
Quite pleased with the resulting image, and the win of course :-)

lesnapanda: to charge a phone for full week in a couple seconds would require a charging current from a std 230V AC socket of around 185 amperes.

Ha!
Try putting that sort of current through a typical phone usb cable connector without frying it. :-)

T3: Camera bags that force you to take them off and put them down in order to get your gear out of them kinda suck. Very impractical and cumbersome. I call these "never-ready" bags, because with your gear so out of reach and inaccessible, these camera bags mean you're never ready to shoot. These kinds of bags are fine for transporting all your stuff to a shoot location, at which time you put down the bag and set up shop, so to speak. But they are terrible for travel or street shooting where you really want to be able to access any piece of equipment at a moment's notice.

Very much agree!
the sling shot bag concept allows you to easily get to your gear and change lenses when you want, without having to stop and put the bag down somewhere; probably in the dirt and possibly out of sight.
I've been using and enjoying the sling shot bag for a few years now. Recently I had to go back to using a Rucksack, for a whole week, and this reminded me just how impractical any type of rucksack is for hiking while doing photography.
But each to their own,...

"Barry Lyndon" is a great film. Watching it is like walking through a series of paintings from the old masters. Slow moving and quite long but intensely enjoyable.

Each set is carefully staged and beautifully shot. That Special lens certainly worked its magic in the low light scenes. Pure romance in the old traditional sense!
I'd definitely recommend it for photographers looking for some tips on composition.

Is there ever an issue with such sharp metal spikes by the zelous secuity guards when checking in?

Fair enough,...I suppose a terrorist wouldn't think of screwing the removeable spikes back on once he's passed the security check ;-)

This is hillarious, !!!!
Thank you for showing this on DPREVIEW. I really enjoyed it.
Loved how the result was examined and a win declared for Nikon.
It puts a whole new perspective on camera testing.

fireplace33: I suppose we should now all start to refer to FF cameras as "crop cameras"

Year- those old crop factors will also need to be redefined.

DeborahBezz: Austria is amazing :)

Thanks Deborah, I agree.
... although with 4 votes of "1" here, I guess some people don't think so ;-)
I wonder what they objected to ?

Why not put this software directly in the camera?
That way you can just hold the camera in "Auto" (burst) mode in any random direction and let it delete any rubbish immediately. At the end of the day all of your remaining photos will be "keepers" to be proud of.
This will save all that time-consuming composing, and fiddling with settings.

lemonadedrinker: I tried a beta version and it deleted all my pictures.

I think in the latest version it just sorts the less pleasing photos into a new directory instead of deleting them immediately ;-)

Thank you
That was great

Just a general question,...
how come video cameras often have square shaped sun hoods?

Anyone know how the AF speed of the Sigma 150-600 compares to the "Bigma" 50-500 with and without this correction ?

In reply to:

fireplace33: I have quite a basic question.
At the moment I use a Nikon D7100 with a set of various FX & DX lenses
Does this type of adapter mean…
I could take my current collection of DX and FX (Nikon and 3rd party) lenses (please see which ones in my gear list)
and attach them on the Nikon version of the adapter and then use them on a micro four thirds camera?
If it works, what disadvantages might I expect using my existing lenses compared to using equivalent specifically designed m43 lenses?
If it works, what would be a good m43 camera to consider for this ?
Thanks for your feedback

Thanks, seems to be not particulary useful then :-(
